Thanks for leading the discussion Paul. I'm looking forward to the next one!

We had a very small turnout tonight, but an absolutely great discussion.

I hope that technical problems didn't prevent anyone from joining...Google
appears to have changed something with Hangouts On Air, and I had to invite
participants once they were viewing the event page.  Please let me know if
this caused you problems, and we'll try to get it sorted out for next time.

Here are a few additional topics and links that were mentioned during the
session:

 - _The Haskell School of Expression_ - An alternate take on functional
   programming with a more applied focus than SICP's abstractions.  Maybe a
   topic for a future study group?

     https://www.coursera.org/course/proglang

 - The article "The Functional Data Model and the Data Languages DAPLEX",
   by David W. Shipman, was recommended. Unfortunately, PDFs are not
   readily accessible, as they're behind an ACM paywall.  Support Open
   Access!

    http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=319561

 - We need a talk on Om (a Clojure wrapper for React.js).  Anyone?

     https://github.com/swannodette/om

 - Dan Grossman's Programming Languages course on Coursera.

     https://www.coursera.org/course/proglang

 - Blog post by Jeff Atwood on computer performance, "The Infinite Space
   Between Words."

Thanks to Dave and Mort for joining in!

I now have two recordings of the online study groups that I need to get
trimmed down and posted. I've been putting off figuring out how to deal
with YouTube's video editing facilities, but it is on my to-do list to
make sure the online versions of 1.2 and 1.3 are made available.
